Nissan is going to ditch diesel power in Europe, with the Japanese manufacturer planning to phase out the fuel choice by not offering it on new models.
As one of the leading EV manufacturers in the world, Nissan already has plenty of presence with non-diesel models. It also follows in the footsteps of manufacturers such as Volvo and Toyota.
The manufacturers are aiming to prioritise electrification, a system that Toyota and luxury arm Lexus has already had success with.
Nissan is already developing additional electric models beyond the currently available Leaf and e-NV200 range. The range-extender e-Power technology currently available in Japan.
Nissan’s projections are that electrified models will make up 40% of sales in Japan.
